the help was no help either. Suns doc portal online was a festering carbunkle with a search feature and their community of greybeards on IRC were nothing less than violent toward anyone who dared to question the OS without having studiously memorized the entire canon of SUN scriptures. Being gobbled up by Oracle/whatever was an inevitability.
now, does Mozilla fit that profile? maybe yes, maybe who cares. theyre already the realmedia player of the browser world with a video chat system and an inline tile targeted advertising program. They validate your searches with google by default, and often times new releases steamroll your configuration options like download path. They arguably havent worked toward their stated mission since 2006 but that isnt the point. Mozillas license alone gives the community so much power over its direction that its path and principle arent relevant. One profoundly stupid move is all it takes before a massive fork, and there have been forks. iceweasel itself is proof the mozilla brand is only as effective as its adherence to principal.
